“Sacred Art is a Friendship” -
Artists Retreat at the ICCC

“Pablo Picasso and Fr. Marie-Alain Couturier”

To All Beauty lovers. On July 1st, come spend the day with us at the International Center for a Culture of Compassion (2 hours North of NYC).
This “art retreat” will focus on the life and work of Fr. Marie-Alain Couturier, a Catholic priest who, back in the 50’s, became friend with Matisse, Picasso, Le Corbusier, Rouault, Chagall, and many others. He renewed a living dia­logue between art and faith. Fr. Marie-Alain Couturier was instru­mental in both the Matisse Chapel in France, and the Rothko Chapel in Houston, TX.
Come and cel­e­brate art and beauty and faith, sur­rounded by the mag­nif­i­cent Catskills rolling hills...
